[texts]ERIC ED305525: Caregiving as a Family Network Event. - ERIC
Caregiving studies often focus on the impaired elder who is the care receiver and the one family member who is perceived as the primary caregiver. Such studies fail to consider all members of the family, whether or not they are involved in providing care. This study was conducted to explore the effects of an elder's health-related dependency on the family network through the eyes of family members other than and including the primary caregiver and care receiver...

[texts]ERIC ED234926: Canadian Families: Victims or Vehicles of Social Change. - ERIC
The transition from an industrial to a postindustrial society presents problems of unemployment, inflation, business failures, and high debt and interest rates. Additionally, this transition exerts a severe impact on individuals and the family unit. The family is shaped by political, economic, and social forces and in turn shapes these dynamics. Attempts have been made to rejuvenate personal and familial capacities and community enterprise...

The United Nations International Year of the Family 1994 will give policymakers the opportunity to bring together threads of social life that have previously been treated separately. The danger in talking about the concept of "the family" lies both in its abstractness and in its emotional, religious, and political overtones. To avoid this definitional quicksand, people must be reminded that every individual has a family (of origin at least); that the family changes throughout the course of an in...

In the traditional family preservation model, a family's integrity is preserved by keeping children in the care of their immediate or extended families. Family reunification has involved safely returning children to the custody of their families after a period of foster care. However, families are not preserved solely by family members maintaining close physical proximity to their members. Most families develop strong emotional and kinship bonds that perpetuate the history and culture of the fam...
